Pros: A few steps to the beach, friendly, helpful staff, quaint, cozy, hot tub and pool a plus, free cocktail hour, free breakfast. Cons: few parking spaces, dated decor, no A/C but no biggie bec at night it was breezy. I think this is a fair and honest review. I got it for $139 since its late Sunday night. Overall,... More

This is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed. Besides the filthy accommodations they rent some of the space to people with dogs who leave them In the rooms and let them bark all night long. Complaints to front desk were met with, 'we will fix it' and nothing was done. It is an awful place the city... More

We found this Villa Rosa Inn through hotels tonight app and paid £101 plus $10 on arrive. The hotel is very dated and our room smelt bad. The whole place needs updating and think it very expensive for what you get! The only plus point is that it's walking distance to the beach. That's why it gets one star! Do... More

My husband and I stayed at The Villa Rosa Inn in October 2015 and April 2016. Because we enjoyed it so much the first time, we decided to return. With only 18 rooms, the hotel has the feel of a bed and breakfast inn. The service is excellent. The complimentary breakfast and late afternoon happy hour add a nice touch.... More

We happened upon this place, which was unassuming on the outside, but spacious, comfortable and authentic on the inside. Free wine and cheese in the afternoon, free continental breakfast in the morning. Pool, spa, close to the beach, the train station and to town. Just beautiful.

Two stars for proximity to beach and flat screen TV. Stayed in cottage unit. Switched to another unit at last minute by owner-no reason given and this unit doesn't have amenities or furnishings that original appeared to offer and what we contracted for. Furnishing look like they came from a thrift store. We have an ocean view ( of sorts... More

We came to Villa Rosa in last July. I absolutely loved it. It was well kept, quaint, cozy, beautiful, and in the perfect location, right off the beach, away from the busy roads. Happy hour surrounded by beautiful gardens, the pretty pool in the courtyard and the lovely ambiance was amazing. I slept like a baby in the comfy beds... More

We found a groupon getaway for Villa Rosa Inn, SB for a decent price ($250) read average reviews and said what the hell. The outside of this place was nice but unkept. The main issues we found we are as follows: 1. The decor... More

Everything in Santa Barbara is expensive, I get that. This hotel is no exception. Parking is abysmal. There are only a few marked stalls for the Inn and the rest of the parking involves complicated street parking rules and permits. The Inn is close to the ocean but with absolutely no view of it from the hotel. It is also... More
